    "If you have two servers surly that means you have two tags haha"
    You know as well as I do you don't need two tags to run from 2 servers :)

    No your correct but it does not make much sense running two sockets over two servers unless your running redundancy or your running two peered pipes to a nominet presence in order to capitalize on the lowest possible latency but at 400ms that latency would be negligible compared to your wait time between queries ;-)

    I wish i had thought of that, i would have caught Clippers.uk :(

    Did you use your tricks you know to get Clippers?

    Slow day. Main target caught by @Hay :( and a couple still loaded. It's like watching paint dry.

    RoR1 was way more fun.

    How on earth did that happen? Charlie.uk should drop, i thought that was a breach of nominets terms unless you own the .co.uk? I guess being a NED applicant brings its own perks of the job... You get first dibs on any domain lol

    I suspect the original owner renewed it (which according to my logs happened between 17:45:27.3404 and 17:45:28 . 4562 :mad:) then mysteriously ;) decided to sell it.

    Within seconds was moved tag... My concern is how did you get in touch with the .co.uk owner because there is no public info for that owner and the original site does not resolve... did you get passed the owners details through other NED applicants? If so i would love to get in contact with some others lol :D

    I know of two sources where you can get historic UK whois records from. It's not a secret if you google it.

    ive checked and i can vouch there is no direct contact details for Charlie.co.uk (for the past 8 years)... there is no other data past that.

    I'm sure there will be a mix of opinions on whether this is in the interests of 'fair play'. I don't mind it per-say, but wasting a day's quota on it slightly riles me! (goes without saying that I'm sure it wasn't meant to be a last minute thing)

    PS - Livedomains won't give out, nor pass on, registrant data.

    This will piss a lot of people off... those chasing a single domain and have wasted 18 hours of quota on that 1 single domain wont be happy...

    PS: I guess Charlie really did bite all our fingers lol

    In poker there is a saying. Hate the game not the player.
    If someone has the ingenuity to go about it a different way without breaking any rules.
    Then, well done, I say!

    Mixed opinion here.

    For someone that has always been so vocal against these registrars mass registering the domains ahead of RoR, and now because that happened, has directly benefitted from the registrar doing so, due to the domain not being released when it should have back in 2019.

    Which side of the fence is it?

    Those two points are not the same. Going by this you are suggesting she should not be catching anything this past two week in protest?
